So we are all hitting close to the 2nd trimester or are in the 2nd trimester. There are several Old wives tales and myths that say what gender you are going to have. I thought it would be fun if we began the guessing fun at what the results of our gender scan is going to be.

History of Parentís Kids
You can find out the sex by going off of your parentís kids and the order. If you are the first born, you will have what your mother had but starting with her second child.
